All Things Strange and Dangerous

Desmond, the poet son of notorious explorer and rumored space pirate Rumlan Clews, inherits a starship that promises adventure across the unexplored reaches of the Milky Way. Defying his avaricious aunt and a calculating fiancée intent on selling his birthright, he takes a leap of faith, propelled by his robotic lawyer’s advice, to follow his late father’s legacy and launch himself into the great unknown.

Desmond’s lyrical life tangles with the unlikeliest of companions: a local crime lord with an agenda, a sentient atomic bomb with a penchant for poetry, a tiny warrior with the bravery of a giant, and a lonely farm girl who had no idea her dreams could come true.
